Practical Signal Processing and Its Applications

With Solved Homework Problems

This textbook gives a fresh approach to an introductory course in signal processing. Its unique feature is to alternate chapters on continuous-time (analog) and discrete-time (digital) signal processing concepts in a parallel and synchronized manner. This presentation style helps readers to realize and understand the close relationships between continuous and discrete time signal processing, and lays a solid foundation for the study of practical applications such as the analysis and design of analog and digital filters. The compendium provides motivation and necessary mathematical rigor. It generalizes the Fourier transform to Laplace and Z transforms, applies these transforms to linear system analysis, covers the time and frequency-domain analysis of differential and difference equations, and presents practical applications of these techniques to convince readers of their usefulness. MATLAB® examples are provided throughout, and over 100 pages of solved homework problems are included in the appendix.

Practical Signal and Image Processing in Clinical Cardiology

Modern signal and image acquisition systems used in the field of cardiology acquire, analyze, and store data digitally. Surface electrocardiography, intra-cardiac electrogram recording, echocardiograms, x-ray, magnetic resonance imaging, and computed tomography are among the modalities in the cardiology field where signal processing is applied. Digital signal processing techniques allow us to automate many of the analyses that had previously been done manually with greater precision, accuracy and speed, as well as detect features and patterns in data that may be too subtle to observe by eye. As more cardiologists are becoming more reliant on such technology, a basic understanding of digital signals and the techniques used to extract information from these signals are required.

Practical Digital Signal Processing

PRACTICAL DIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSING covers the principles, procedures, techniques and applications of one of the upcoming aids to non-destructive testing - Digital Signal Processing (DSP). DSP is one of the most powerful technologies that has shaped science and engineering in the twenty-first century causing revolutionary changes in a wide variety of fields ranging from electrical engineering, communications, medical imaging, radar & sonar, high fidelity music reproduction and non-destructive testing. DSP is traditionally a highly mathematical subject. However, this book has been conceived and written in such a way that practical DSP techniques can be learned and used without the traditional barriers of detailed mathematics and theory. The book has five chapters. The first chapter provides a brief overview of signals, their classification and also conversion methods from analog to digital. The second chapter concentrates on signal processing methods and data analysis. The third chapter provides an insight into the advanced DSP techniques such as cross correlation, cluster analysis, artificial neural network etc. The fourth chapter provides an overview of the basics of Digital Image Processing (DIP) while the fifth chapter details the applications of DSP and DIP by the authors and their colleagues. This book is intended to be a guide for the beginner in the field with engineering or science background. NDE managers and professionals intending to have an overview of the fundamental aspects would also benefit from the contents of the book.

Digital Signal Processing

System Analysis and Design

This new, fully-revised edition covers all the major topics of digital signal processing (DSP) design and analysis in a single, all-inclusive volume, interweaving theory with real-world examples and design trade-offs. Building on the success of the original, this edition includes new material on random signal processing, a new chapter on spectral estimation, greatly expanded coverage of filter banks and wavelets, and new material on the solution of difference equations. Additional steps in mathematical derivations make them easier to follow, and an important new feature is the do-it-yourself section at the end of each chapter, where readers get hands-on experience of solving practical signal processing problems in a range of MATLAB experiments. With 120 worked examples, 20 case studies, and almost 400 homework exercises, the book is essential reading for anyone taking DSP courses. Its unique blend of theory and real-world practical examples also makes it an ideal reference for practitioners.
